Na Na pinches her pennies

Shh… don't tell anyone I'm poor. They all think I'm living frugal and green just like everyone these days. This is a blog about a senior citizen living a frugal life, on a fixed income, in a low income food desert, and passing along knowledge from lessons learned. Some she learned from her Grandma Mama many years ago and some learned only a few days ago.

URGENT!!!! It is not from me

My email has been hacked.  If you receive an email from me asking for money PLEASE DO NOT RESPOND!  It is not coming from me.  I am at home and I am safe and I am NOT asking for money.

    With Equifax hack we may all be breached. Haven’t checked my email but you are worth your weight in gold. My favorite emails are in a really old account and come from overseas wanting to help me collect my inheritance from the dead king. My brother always swore I was the adopted one. Haha

    Well, maybe it’s our fault.

    Not you and me ‘our’, but US corporations farmed out ‘customer service’ jobs to far off places passing on all our personal information with no controls over who is viewing or collecting it. To save a few dollars to the wealthiest it seems to me the ordinary people are constantly compromised. Same old, same old story.

    I am not ‘being racist’ but I don’t want to discuss my health with a person in the Philippines, or get advice on my cable service from India.

    And when I refused to pay an erroneous bill which was not mine a few years ago the apparently legitimate US company ‘sold’ my ‘debt’ immediately to a collections agency who were then given all my personal details with presumably no controls on what they did with them.

    The recent Experian security breach ( and advice given after ) shows to me these companies who have so much power over so many American lives do not take that responsibility seriously enough.

    Sorry you were targeted Anita, it’s a violation.

      ABSOLUTELY! I feel exactly the same way. Its no wonder the scammers target the US so much cause we give them everything they need. I fought against a collection company for years. I’d take them to court to prove the debt wasn’t mine. I’d win. They’d sell it to another collection agency and the whole thing would start all over again. The last time in court I filed against the original debt company for proof the debt was actually mine. They couldn’t produce anything because the debts wasn’t mine. They had to pay all court costs and give me back all court costs over the years. That is the reason I refuse to get credit and check regularly that no one does it in my name. I get so TIRED of having to be on my toes watching for criminals.

    Ignorant people need to find something to do other than trying to rip off other people.

      I think of all the really good things they could accomplish with their minds if they tried. Too bad they follow the dark side instead of the light.

    I was just going to tell you about this, as I rec’d it this morning. I knew it wasn’t from you and “junked” it. It really is disgusting how people do this sort of thing.

      Yes, it is disgusting. I did get my password changed but apparently they wiped out all my contacts info so I can’t let anyone know. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that no one actually believes it came from me.
